With Carter-Williams Likely Headed to NBA Lottery, Tyler Ennis Set to Become Starting Point Guard at Cuse
NEWARK, N.J. — Syracuse will likely have a new starting point guard when it heads to a new league next year.
Sophomore point guard Michael Carter-Williams is widely considered to be a lottery pick in a weak NBA Draft this year, which would pave the way for St. Benedict’s Prep senior guard Tyler Ennis to take over the starting job next season when the Orange leave the Big East for the ACC.
“You know, of course [the NBA] has been my dream since I was a kid, but like I said before I’m just trying to focus on this season,” Carter-Williams said after going for 14 points on 3-of-10 shooting, 9 rebounds and 3 assists as No. 6 Syracuse held off Seton Hall, 76-65, Saturday at the Prudential Center.
